Colombian Warlords Sentenced In Miami For Drugs

The Associated Press
MIAMI — Two right-wing paramilitary warlords extradited earlier this year with 12 others with great fanfare from Colombia were ordered Thursday to spend decades behind U.S. bars after pleading guilty to roles in a far-reaching cocaine smuggling conspiracy.
U.S. District Judge K. Michael Moore imposed the maximum sentences under federal guidelines Thursday on 60-year-old Ramiro Vanoy Murillo and Francisco Javier Zuluaga Lindo, 38, even though prosecutors recommended lesser sentences.
Vanoy Murillo was sentenced to more than 24 years in prison; Zuluaga Lindo’s sentence was just under 22 years. They are the first of the 14 warlords extradited in May to be sentenced to federal prison.
